Biodynamic

Biodynamic agriculture is a method of organic farming originally developed by Rudolf Steiner that employs what proponents describe as "a holistic understanding of agricultural processes". One of the first sustainable agriculture movements, it treats soil fertility, plant growth, and livestock care as ecologically interrelated tasks, emphasizing spiritual and mystical perspectives. Proponents of biodynamic agriculture, including Steiner, have characterized it as "spiritual science" as part of the larger anthroposophy movement.

  • Benziger Winery Biodynamic on SonomaChat

    Biodynamic Wineries are something that I am still learning about and I was thrilled to have Benziger Winery host our most recent SonomaChat with their “Pinot Experience”.
